Title: Beyond lumps and bumps 2.0
Speaker: Dr. Samson Ng

Please join us for this interactive seminar designed to review oral lesions and dental therapeutics that oral care providers commonly encounters in a community practice. This seminar will reinforce the chair-side techniques for head & neck and intra-oral examinations.  Techniques for written and photo documentation of oral lesions will also be discussed.  The visual presentation and hands-on demonstrations of adjunctive evaluation tools will definitely make these topics interesting and educational.  Topics includes, common benign oral lesions, microbial infections, and oral pre-cancerous lesion.

Learning outcome in this interactive seminar

  • Consolidate the clinical technique of performing an extra-oral and intra-oral soft tissue examination.
  • Ability to diagnosis and treat non-odontogenic  oral lesions  commonly identified in a community setting.
